10 things that Republicans Taking Control of Congress Proves

10 things that Republicans Taking Control of Congress Proves
According to my childhood friends and parents (I’m from Oak Park), progress officially died on Tuesday. Here are the 10 things that the GOP unquestionably proved by retaking control of Congress. 1) That psycho guy on your news feed that blamed Obama for everything from trying to steal his machine gun while he was sleeping to the faux Ebola crisis was...

7 Opinions of Mine That Usually Lead to an Argument

    1. As good as Kanye’s old music was, it’s hurtful to listen to it now because he is so weird.  He and his music went from so real and melodic to so fake and noisy. 2. Seinfeld (tv show) was good, but too whiny 3. Fantasy Football is lame. How ego-centric do you... Read more »

11 Things Republicans Love the Most

11. Israel <br><br> Republicans LOVE them some Israel. They aren't sure why, since Republicans trust only fellow Christians. But they know that whoever writes their talking points likes Israel for some reason, so they fall in line.
Republicans get a bad rap in the mainstream media. They are branded as “The Party of No”, or the bigoted party, or the party of out of touch old white guys who look out for their best interests. But they are so much more than just a party of negative people. Here is a list... Read more »

12 Media Personalities who Shout Instead of Talk

<strong>Ed Schultz</strong><br><br>A lot of people say that his show is unwatchable, but I disagree. However, I will concede that's un-listenable. You could mute his show in a nursing home auditorium and the residents in the back row would plug their ears.
Some television personalities are referred to as talking heads. These are more like shouting heads. You may not recognize all of their names or faces, but I know you’ve heard them. Either on your television set or radio, or on the television set or radio of someone within 800 yards of you.

6 Reasons Conservatives are Hypocrites to NOT Support Ferguson Protests

Conservatives Love The Constitution <br><br> Some conservative pundits assert that the Constitution was written by  their God, one tea party candidate painted a likeness of the Constitution on the side of her campaign bus, and several others state that the president is, "shredding the constitution", when they disagree with his policies. So it stands to reason they take enforcing the laws and freedoms in it very seriously.

<br><br> With that in mind, the First Amendment to the Constitution states: <br><br>
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people to peaceably assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.". <br><br>  What the Ferguson protestors are doing is exactly what democracy looks like in action as guaranteed by the First Amendment of the US Constitution. Inexplicably, a majority of conservatives oppose the protests in Ferguson.<br><br>For a conservative to oppose such activities would be like if someone claimed to be the biggest Shakespeare fan in the world, but then loudly opposed a local theater troupe staging a performance of Hamlet.
It’s unreasonable to expect others to agree with you about everything, all you can reasonably ask for is that the other person is consistent in their beliefs. Baseball is a great example of this. A manager doesn’t expect every ball or strike call by the umpire to go his way, he just wants the umpire... Read more »

Republican Talking Point Flow Chart

Republican Talking Point Flow Chart
Below is a flow chart I devised for the Republican party’s talking points,  after realizing that these are the only talking points the Koch brothers,  Shelden Addelson, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Haliburton, Shell Mobile, Exxon, et al.  allow their lap dogs to use. The top chart is for when a Republican is speaking about an... Read more »

A few years back our other writer (or “blogger” if you want to be a dick about it), T.R. Slyder, wrote a funny and great piece about the 30 good things about turning 30.  It’s uplifting, funny and a good read.  I suggest you read it immediately after this list makes you hate growing old… or just go read...

10 Bible Verses Violated by the Republican Party

10 Bible Verses Violated by the Republican Party
Please note this article is not another case of a Democrat insulting the Republican party and their religious members.  I don’t like either political party and I’ve lost hope in the current political system until major changes are made. While I’ve lost most  interest in national politics,  some things still catch my eye. But what... Read more »

A Mentally ill Man Shoots up a crowd at a DC Navy Yard and CBS News' Scott Pelley says it is NOT Terrorism
A mentally ill, former military man murders a dozen indiscriminately in public *Yawn* This is America, after all. Could you reasonably have expected otherwise? Yesterday I was watching my local CBS 5pm news when I saw the anchor Scott Pelley give a 20-second teaser for what to expect on tonight’s broadcast. Pelley soberly reported the... Read more »

8 Reasons I was Psyched to see Geraldo's Areolae in his Selfie

8 Reasons I was Psyched to see Geraldo's Areolae in his Selfie
I’ve always liked extremely stupid stuff and being psyched about seeing Geraldo’s areolae certainly continues that proud tradition. Don’t get me wrong- I despise things that are stupid. But extremely stupid stuff captivates me like how a tornado enthralls a storm-chaser, it’s destructive and scary but I crave the rush of its nearness. Not the... Read more »
